Time to read: A magical 49 seconds.
Do you believe in Santa?
When my children were little, they'd ask me if Santa was real. My answer was always a fine line between my value of honesty and the fun of keeping the magic alive. My typical reply? "Well, honey. I believe in the magic of Christmas, and Santa is part of that magic."
Even though the Santa thing has been busted now that my kids are teenagers, I still believe in the magic of Christmas. Even more, I've come to realize that the magic of Christmas is actually present in every day life if you know where to look.
Do you experience magic in your every day life?
Try on these examples so you can start to find the magic, even at the office. This idea is not as woo-woo as it sounds.
- You think you're late to catch a flight, and the plane ends up being delayed. You make your flight.
- Your roof needs a repair, and you get a surprise bonus from your boss for just the amount to cover it.
- You're tired, crabby and lonely after a hard day at work, and your best friend from high school calls to check in.
- You stumble across that book in a used bookstore on... (fill in the blank)... that you've always wanted.
Sure, logic might explain these things as lucky coincidences. My husband said to me this morning when I was mooning over the magic of finding a lost password that "the googles know everything." It's possible that there's only luck or Google. And isn't it more fun to entertain the possibility that magic works in your life every day?
Look around and see what you can see.
Christmas magic all the time. Even at work. Now that's pretty awesome.
With rebely, Christmas love!
